The hypothesis of a borrelial origin of morphea and LSA is currently controversial. METHODS Immunoglobulin G (IgG) immunoblot serologies against Borrelia burgdorferi in patients with morphea and LSA were analyzed and compared with those from healthy donors and patients with syphilis to determine the association with a probable borrelial agent in Colombia… CONTINUE READING
